Looks promising.. But you will have to replace all 'ripped' graphics with your own before even thinking of releasing it.. Also I personally wouldn't touch the 'Indiana Jones' character purely for the reason Lucasfilm might prevent you from releasing your game.
Why not rewrite the character a bit so you won't have these kinds of problems.. Also creating your own character (even if it's loosely based on a character that already exists) makes it easier for creating other kind of mediastuff.. Remember, Indiana Jones itself is based on stereotype characters from the 30's-50's movies (hell after seeing a compilation of old movies somewhere on the internet, a lot of the action has just been copied over from those serials, so Lucas wasn't original anyway)..

To be honest, nobody cares if you have ripped graphics in your game. LucasArts don't tend to care about this kind of stuff, they haven't intervened in fan games since about 2002 or so. I think they put a C&D on The Devil's Triangle (a MI fangame) though I remember playing that, so maybe not. Fate of Monkey Island 2*. But if you consider the wealth of fan games out there using LEC graphics, they're highly unlikely to waste the time doing anything about you. Of course you ideally don't get noticed until the game is released. On the whole, I wouldn't worry about it.

*(Edit: Changed the name of the game LEC stopped.)

This looks great, despite having ripped graphics (who cares after all? ;))

To be fair, graphics for an Indy game are really hard to pull off anyway. I'd gladly trade ripped graphics for a new indy adventure.

Looks great Codex, hope you finish it soon! :)
